Flash Back 2011

2011... Still in the mud!
Things started to look brighter for us in the beginning of the year, but we still felt like we where stock in the mud. 
Brad's job got better by only having to travel, about 2 weeks to 3 weeks out of the month, and the big plus is that we got to go with him to a few close places.
However, there were definitely hard times! check the list:
  1. Got denied in an home modification
  2. We had to sell our cars to get out of our loan, (good and bad thing)
  3. JULY
    • My Grandma died of Colon cancer
    • My Brother had to leave to Brazil
    • My Cousin was killed in Afeganistan only 11 days after my grandma passed away
  4. Our house is for short sale
  5. Brads Grandma died on Christmas eve

But I definitely have good memories that I would like to register on the pictures below, enjoy the overload ;)!!

New Years we spent with our great friends Jaque and Brian and their beautiful girls, our girls BFF,
We acctually had quite a party planed with other great friends, but they bail on us last minute! Shame on you  Jefferies and Ruanos!
Just a cute picture of the girls enjoying the bubbles at Nannies :)
Valentines is always a big deal in our house hold, its Gabi's favorite holiday!
Memorial Day
Gabi's Preschool Graduation, 
This sweet princess had a sad face the entire ceremony, when it was over, I asked her what was wrong, she said that she was emotional, that she was crying of happiness!

Drinving to Colorado and a stop on the way to see one of our favorite people!
sad that they leave so far away :(
Those girls are in haven when they get to play with each other
Pretty view on the drive through the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado
On our drive to Colorado I was quite bugged with Brad that he decided to add 2 hours to our trip  to drive though  the Rocky Mountain National Park, besides having to pay $20 just to drive through, we had only a few minutes of sunlight and we where all tired, so I told him that I better see a bear to make my $20 worth, sure enough on the end of the park we stopped to eat and there was a bear on the trash can of the restaurant we where only a few feet away in our car, it was pretty cool!
In Colorado brushing the horses before riding them with untie  Suzy

Monster bash for Gabi's Birthday
Gabis and her Ghouls
this little vamp was so excited to get her first electric guitar!
Trick-or-treats at Grandma Billies Place. She also left us this year on Xmas eve,  she always  gave the warmest hug, we will miss you Gradma!
The girls and their pumpkins, we decided to paint us this year, Bella did the Minnie mouse and Gabi the bat "Count Fabulous "
But daddy wanted the traditional one and had his carved
I was always against the idea of eating all the Halloween candy in one day, so we are over with it, but every  year we have this dilemma, and I didn't want to be the "mean guy" this time, so I let Brad win the battle. Well it result in this poor little one vomiting all night long, I had to change her sheets 6 times in the first night, dad left in the morning out of town for work and I was left with this sick baby, throwing up for 3 days, + one trip to the ER. $380 later and no sleep for mama, my husband agreed with me that its not good for them to eat this much candy at once!
Our little family at the Haystack
